Student and professor in a chemistry class.

Junior Scholars

Northwestern juniors and seniors can be selected as a Junior Scholar to work with a professor on research or another scholarly project. If selected, you’ll earn a stipend, and your experience could lead to recognition as a contributor on a professional presentation or publication. It’s also great preparation for the intensive professor-student collaboration that is common in graduate school.

Junior Scholars may assist faculty by:

  • Working on an original writing project
  • Designing new experimental protocols for science labs
  • Participating in a professor’s on-going natural or social science research
  • Reading and commenting on a professor’s book draft

If you're interested in becoming a Junior Scholar, talk to your adviser or one of your professors.
